In 2008, Moulder and his wife, Sharon (also a 1980 Temple graduate), made a generous gift to establish the Moulder Center for Drug Discovery Research at the School of Pharmacy.

Returning for new terms on the board are Bret S. Perkins and Joseph W. “Chip” Marshall III. Both are Commonwealth appointees.

Perkins is vice president of external and government affairs for Comcast in Philadelphia. In 1991, Perkins earned a BBA in business administration from Temple, and later served on the trustees as president of the Alumni Association. His appointment as a trustee continues through Oct. 1, 2016.

Marshall received a B.A. from Temple University in 1975, and a J.D. from the university’s Beasley School of Law in 1979. His appointment is effective through Oct. 14, 2016.
